A brand new teaser trailer for an upcoming biopic about pop music parody master, Weird Al Yankovich that is set to premiere later this year.

Weird: The Al Yankovich Story stars Harry Potter's, Daniel Radcliffe as Yankovich. Speaking to Uproxx, Radcliffe said, “Wearing the Hawaiian shirt is a huge responsibility that I don’t take lightly. I’m honoured to finally share with the world the absolutely 100 per cent unassailably true story of Weird Al’s depraved and scandalous life.”

“Anyone got an accordion?” Radcliffe asks dramatically in the trailer – watch below.

The upcoming biopic was co-written by Yankovic and director and producer Eric Appel. The film documents Yankovic's rise to fame and the highly unique career he carved out with his masterful parody hits. Some of his most beloved comedic songs, including Eat It and Like a Surgeon will feature.

“When my last movie UHF came out in 1989, I made a solemn vow to my fans that I would release a major motion picture every 33 years, like clockwork. I’m very happy to say we’re on schedule,” Yankovic said in a statement earlier this year. “And I am absolutely thrilled that Daniel Radcliffe will be portraying me in the film. I have no doubt whatsoever that this is the role future generations will remember him for."

An official release date for the movie hasn't been announced yet – we will keep you posted!
